Ever ask yourself, “how am I supposed to pay for THAT?” If you’re a homeowner who has built up equity in your home, the answer is simple: a cash-out refinance. Not sure what a cash-out refinance is? We’ve got you covered.
Did You Know
As time goes on, your home is gaining value or “equity.” Once you’ve built up significant equity (at least 20%) you can withdraw it via a cash-out refinance, a new mortgage replacing your old loan for more than what you currently owe. You keep the difference between the old and new loans (taking into account closing costs) to use however you wish.
How It Works
Let’s say you still owe $150,000 on your home, but its value on the market is worth $300,000 now. That means you’ve generated $100,000 in equity. With a cash-out refinance, you could take out a new mortgage for $240,000 and get $90,000 cash back. Keep in mind, your new mortgage will come with closing costs, a new interest rate and a potentially longer term.
